Likud Is Not The Answer

The Likud is not the answer to Israel's problems. Not the Likud of yesterday, certainly not the Likud of today. Netanyahu lacks the moral fiber, wisdom, and courage that is necessary to save Israel. He had his chance to deal a death blow to Oslo, and he failed miserably. He doesn't deserve a second chance. The arrogant Bibi has already declared that he will continue to talk with the butchers of the PLO.

Rehabilitating Likud is also not the answer, despite the best intentions of good men like Moshe Feiglin. I don't understand Feiglin. Exactly what Likud Party is he trying to rehabilitate? The Likud of Menachem Begin who betrayed himself and all of Cherut's principles? The Likud of the aging prostitute Shamir who disgraced the legacy of Lechi when he joined with Peres to ban the Kach Party. Certainly not the Likud of Bibi who also shook Arafat's filthy paw even as he gave away Hebron, or of the the tyrant Sharon who bulldozed away the Jews of Gaza. Feiglin's dream, though well intended, is naive and dangerous. It empowers Likud as a viable option. The Likud does not warrant salvation.

Likud, Labor, and Kadima are all bad for Israel. Only a party that embraces a Torah solution is worthy of leading Klal Yisroel.
